We are the first funeral home in the state that is now offering unique service that will help families protect their future generations. The funeral home has partnered with DNA Memorial, a DNA services company that has developed proprietary method of extracting DNA from a non-invasive cheek swab or hair sample for indefinite room temperature storage. DNA is a human genetic record that provides medical and genealogical information which has proven valuable for a myriad of reasons. Some of the benefits of obtaining DNA samples contribute to diagnosing medical conditions. As well as determining disease risk and prevention measures for children and future generations to come. Along with medicinal purposes, it also assists in learning about one’s ancestors, finding relatives of adoptees and discovering from which relative(s) certain traits were inherited.
